Platelet Rich Protein (PRP) Treatments in Ottawa
One of the many treatments that we offer at Medical Aesthetics Canada is the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial. If you’ve been looking to experience the vampire facial Ottawa residents can’t stop talking about, you can receive the same treatment that has become so popular amongst celebrities here. Kim Kardashian has infamously praised the procedure for its rejuvenating properties.
PRP works by combining the plasma of the patient’s own blood with microdermabrasion to stimulate cell production. This can help with a multitude of skin care concerns, including but not limited to acne scarring, wrinkles, and large pores.
What are the Benefits of Plasma Rich Protein Treatments?
Plasma Rich Protein treatments can provide a wealth of benefits, some of which include:
- Increased turnover of skin cells
- Stimulation of hair growth
- Reduction of wrinkles, stretch marks and scars
- Smoothening properties which target uneven skin tone
- Plumping and volumizing properties
These benefits considered alongside the treatment area make PRP a versatile treatment option for hair growth, scar reduction, wrinkle treatment, and other skin care concerns. Whether you want a more youthful appearance, want to hide skin imperfections, or are trying to correct a budding bald spot, PRP represents the future of skin care.
What should I expect from PRP?
The treatment can take up to 90 minutes and requires combining your blood and plasma, alongside other techniques in order to trigger collagen production in the skin. The procedure is relatively painless as anaesthetic cream is applied to the face before the treatment. You may feel some discomfort when you are having your blood drawn initially, but this depends on your tolerance. If you are uncomfortable at any part during the procedure, just let your practitioner know.
Your blood will be taken in order to extract your platelets, small blood cells which play a role in the repair of damaged blood vessels and cells. The protein-rich plasma is then extracted from the blood using a centrifuge and applied to the face with microneedling techniques, enabling it to be fully absorbed into the skin.
This facial has transformative benefits that can improve the overall quality of your skin and you can expect to see results within a week of receiving the PRP treatment in Ottawa.
How Should I Care For My Skin After PRP Treatment?
In order to maximize the benefits of the facial, you should avoid wearing make-up for around two days after treatment. During this short period of recovery time, you may experience facial redness, which can be addressed by hydrating your skin with a light moisturizer. Wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 30 for the two days following treatment is highly advised as your skin is extremely sensitive during this time.
